When typing an email in Mail on aluminium Macbook in Mail errors

When typing an email in Mail on aluminium Macbook I sometimes find I am typing into a single highlighted letter space that just keeps overtyping in the one space. No new text appears apart from the most recently typed single letter. I also have the much reported problem of entire blocks of text getting erased and overtyped which are then unrecoverable. This seems to happen no matter how careful I am to not touch the trackpad. There is no option to ignore accidental input on the system preferences. Sherry

    Hi Hamster47, Mackbook is new Aliminium one released at same time as 15" Macbook Pro last year. All updates up to date and yes - only happens in Mail. Haven't looked on Mac support site for fixes though, just on software update.

Hi Sherry, When did this start happening and how old is the MacBook?
Go to software update (apple menu) and see if there is a firmware update available for your mac. I have a recollection of an update to fix an oversensitive scratchpad and/or keyboard issue (but I might be wrong).
Does it only happen with mail?

My email address is What is my incoming and out going info. i am setting up my email account in my new macbook pro.

  1. What email program are you using? Entourage (Microsoft) or Mail (Apples pre-installed Mail program).
  2. What is the Postcode of your suburb?
Generally, the mail settings are something like :

POP Settings


You can try both of these out. If one of them works, let me know (and rate).

If they don't, then reply back with your postcode number so I can retrieve the settings for you.

Enter password for account window. but it does not accept any password at all. this is in Mail on Macbook Air. In the setup / advanced the password is present. I can receive emails and sometimes, I repeat...

Sounds like your ISP is rejecting the password stored in mail. I used to get this a lot in windows with outlook express. The best solution I used to find was to remove all the mail settings and start from scratch setting them up again.
